, thanks for watching. there cannot be another false start in curbing gun violence in this country. today, the path for change was paved. president obama announced proposals for sweeping reforms to gun laws in this country in the wake of the horror at sandy hook elementary, it's gut check time for america. >> this is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe. this is how we will be judged. >> horrible gun violence is not isolated to one cold december day in connecticut. every day wasted leads to more lost lives. >> keeping our children safe. precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us at sandy hook elementary. more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. 900 in the past month. and every day we wait, that number will keep going. >> over the past month, vice president joe biden and his task force is met with 229 groups from around the country. biden's task force provided a roadmap for the long drive ahead. >> while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of le
that level of carnage or worse every single day across our country. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term, and unless we take action during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> perhaps sensing that grave urgency, the president said he received vice president biden's gun violence task force's reg recommendations today, one day earlier than planned, and he said he'll announce more details later in the week. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington msnbc political analyst karen finney, and democratic strategist julian epstein. karen, if i might begin with you, the president of the nra, david keene, says an assault weapons ban would never make it through congress and that any limits on high capacity ammunition clips would also fail and larry pratt h executive director of the gun owners of america, says background checks are a complete waste of time. so why don't we all now go home and look forward to the next mass shooting. >> yeah. we might as well. you know what? and while we're at it let's give up
's been an american hero. he's sacrificed a lot for his country. i almost-- he votes for obama twice. i don't know how anybody that identifies himself as a conservative can say that they're still a republican and vote for obama? >> most liberal president we've had, you know, modern history. what's your reaction to this? >> well, i'm also greatly saddened. i've been a supporter, my father, roy ennis and i, our organization have been great boosters and supporters of general powell in the past, and he is an american hero, and we've been proud of him in the past and we're not proud of him in this occasion, and i think that clearly general powell is out of the mainstream with the republican party and unfortunately, i mean, look, you can have a different point of view and a different point of view and still be in the same party, but to inject the race card, which by the way, he's been a victim of in the past. >> sean: that's true. >> he's been called, he's been called a house negro by harry belafonte because he worked for the administration. for general powell to inject the same type of race
troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in the near future, maybe in the distant future, will be able to get the debt ceiling increased without a rei
. >> he won't collect ransom for not collecting it on the economy. the last time the country reached the debt ceiling, obama was thinking about what will be prioritized next time. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on times, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear material wouldn't get paychecks. investors will ask if united states is america is a in fact a safe bet. >> reporter: they launched a new term by focusing on the issue likely to dominate the second term. >> shep: what are we hearing from republicans on this? >> republicans are looking at a fiscal perfect storm in march, avoid the fiscal cliff and renew funding for most government programs. john hoern boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so, too, the consequences of allowing our spending programs to go unresolved. congressman mike lee the latter problem could ec
cabinet members. he'll give president obama a comprehensive package of recommendations tomorrow. lawmakers say the connecticut school shooting transformed the country and americans are ready for stricter gun laws. the national rifle association says it has enough support in congress to block any new laws banning assault weapons. >> four local counties are sponsoring a gun guy back tomorrow and marin county is the drop off point. they raised $40,000 to pay for the weapons. officials say cashing in the firearms is a fitting tribute to nonviolence on martin luther king's birthday on tuesday. people can get $200 for a semi-automatic rifle and shotguns and $100 for other firearms. those who turn in violent video games can get up to $10 if there is still money available. locations open tomorrow from 11:00 in the morning until 8:00 p.m. at police stations in the area including st. andrew's church in marin city. >> 25-year-old man accused 6 raping a san francisco woman during a robbery is in custody. he forced his way into the residence on saturday night late. a neighbor called 9-1-1. jones jumped

information on labels of violent video games as for the rush in many parts of therms country to buy firearms congress may ban, mr. obama blamed fears of government overreach. >> part of the challenge that weth confront is that even the slightest hint of some sensible, responsible legislation in this area fans this notion that somehow here it comes and that everybody's guns are going to beo taken away. >> reporter: mr. obama said if congress does not act he can achieve some of these goal us there executive order. but, scott, the only area the president talked about that wasso improved tracing at the federal level of guns sold to or stolen by criminals. maj >> pelley: major, thank you, the government could hit itst borrowing limit again as soon as mid-february. earlier, at that white house news conference, the president called on congress to raise the debt ceiling so the country can pay its bills. >> we have to do something sensible and we shouldn't be doing this on a one to three- month time frame. why would we do that? this is the united states ofajor america, major.in we can't manage our a
in this country. president obama is considering executive action to push through some new gun control proposals that would be very controversial. breaking details on the way.

has lowered its expectations. only 35% in the nbcs in/"wall street journal" poll says the country is headed in the right direction. as president obama's news portrayed is released, his approval stands at 52%. his likability at 61%, but only 29% say he is working effectively with congress. and today there's more conflict. responding to the president's declaration that he won't negotiate over the debt ceiling, republicans backed down. they raised the borrows limit but just for three months. if democrats don't great to a budget of deep spending cuts by april, they cut off lawmakers' paychecks i want why should the american public pay elected officials this they don't do their fundamental right to pass a budget. >> reporter: since richard nixon resigned, second terms have had negative starts. >> it's been a long time since we've seen a positive second term. >> the bush 43 second term was plagued by iraq and hurricane katrina. the clinton second term by scandal and impeachment. now, amid the preparations for celebration, the new obama term starts with a budget confrontation. -- saying

. harris, thank you. >> sure. jon: plenty of drama in the growing debate over guns in this country, this after president obama proposes the most sweeping changes to u.s. gun laws in almost two decades. his plan is drawing a lot of criticism, including from, including a number of executive orders like stronger background checks and more support to law enforcement agencies but the main part of mr. obama's plan requires congressional approval. it calls for renewing an assault weapons ban that went into effect in 1994. then expired a decade later. now the question is whether all of this will be implemented and if so, will it make a difference? paul gigot is the editorial page editor of "the wall street journal." the president has suggested that, you know, the american people are behind these proposals. the question is, is the congress? >> well i think that remains to be seen and i think the reality is this is an uphill fight for the president and not merely because of republican opposition in the house of representatives, which they control. also because of democratic potential opposit
to see the president do it. that said, you can't run the entire country without the house of representatives, so obama is going to have to make compromises. >> ari, i want to move to you on this. you really sort of discussing hopefully a move towards pragmatism, towards the middle, remembering of that collaboration that we did see some bits of towards the end of the fiscal cliff negotiations, but are you losing the good ones, the ones that might work towards this compromise long term, those who are moving away from whatever edge they are on towards the middle? one example, looking forward 2014, jay rockefeller saying he will not run again. that might be an example. politico points out this. rockefeller's retirement means it's an opportunity for republicans to pick up a seat meaning it's a rough year for senate democrats overall. what's your thought about this? >> well, there's no doubt that politically rockefeller had above average democratic support in a state that is very favorable to republicans so it's very tough on republicans to do what he did, but to bipartisanship
as to why we really should have some gun registration and gun laws in this country. so the mood of the country right now is such that if we don't move on this now, i don't know what we're going get done. and this is something that president obama really seems to want to usher? >> the catalyst of the conversation, though, seems to be based on what we witness as a country in newtown. play your michael bloomberg was on our air earlier and talking about the fact that we can use that as an example. we have a bigger problem in this country. gentlemen, take a listen. >> as horrific as sandy hook has been and all of the other seechliseechl i seemingly episodes of mass violence, we experience that carnage or worse every single day across our country because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action, during those four years some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns. >> mayor michael bloomberg
, along with the drone, fast deployment special force teams are at ready, they're not in country yet and president obama has been speaking to algerian sources and speaking to the u.k. prime minister cameron as well as the french prime minister hollande and people in washington are asking for clarity, here in london, they are nervous and getting late word from the japanese government that they want a stop to this operation immediately. all of this, a response, according to the militants, that french-led assault in the neighboring mali against rebel militants there, and the french troops are on the ground now, staging an assault now, asking for the u.s. help. the u.s. is considering, but u.s., eyes, got to tell you, megyn, all on algeria. those reports, some hostages , but no americans have been mentioned, and some hostages and some captors could be dead and the latest word is that this algerian army operation with the whole international community watching on the sidelines, is on going, back to you. >> megyn: wow, greg, thank you. it's believed a well-known terror leader is behind it,
in washington, d.c. president and michelle obama went ball to ball in a big celebration. this time around, nations the challenges the country faces and economic problems and the budget issues here in d.c., they've gone much smaller. there will be only two presidential inaugural balls tomorrow night. they'll be in bigger venues and one will be at verizon center here. there will be plenty of opportunities to do it. it's been more subdued in terms of crowd. last time there was 1.8 million people estimated to have been on the mall. just today organizers have downgraded their estimates, they have predicted 600 this had to 8 high school,000 they have moved that down to half a million to $700,000. as we get nearer and nearer to the ceremonial issues of tomorrow they are looking at smaller crowds. an illustration of waning enthusiasm for the now re-elected president. he didn't get as many popular votes nor electoral votes as four years ago. his turnout will be smaller too. >> heather: and i hear it's going to be cold out there. bundle up. >> reporter: nothing like years ago. last president who ha

. and the president is going to have two very big opportunities to sell the country on his proposals about gun violence. first the inaugural address on monday and the state of the union address. as we mentioned, he is turning obama for america into this organization for action and vice president joe biden made this promise to you and your colleagues at the mayor's conference yesterday. i want to show everybody. take a listen. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress. we're going to take it beyond that. we're going to take it to the american people. we're going to go around the country, making our case, and we're going to let their voices -- the voices of the american people be heard. >> sir, what do you think this organization is actually going to be able to accomplish? do you think it can match what the obama reelection campaign was able to do? >> yes, i do. and i'll tell you why, this really isn't about the power of the presidency versus the power of the nra. it's about the power of the people. and as you've seen in poll after poll since newtown, there's about a 16-point in

the president for accepting armed protection for his daughters at school, when mr. obama recently questioned the need for using police to step up security in schools across the country for regular folks. moments ago the white house responded calling the ad repugnant and cowardly. here is part of what they're talking about. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools? when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >> bottom of the hour, we will ask our panel if using the president's daughters to make a point is fair game, or does the n.r.a. go too far? might the n.r.a. have even hurt its cause with this ad? and we'll circle back to what we now saw was the photo opportunity that the president had with young children flanking him as he put pressure on lawmakers to do what he wants on this issue. both sides using children, appropriate? we'll talk about it. in the meantime, you can find out more about the president's specific proposals going to our website at foxnews.com/politics. well, as this all plays

a gun grabber. everybody's a gun grabber. president obama did introduce yesterday a very broad package of reforms to try to deal with gun violence in this country. expanded access to mental health treatment, improvements in the background checks system, resources for schools to have more armed guards on site if they want them. and yes, a renewal of the old assault weapons ban that we had for ten years before it expired in 2004. since president obama introduced those measures all of the discussion in washington has been about the viability of what he is proposing, right? renewing the assault weapons ban, that's not viable, that'll never pass. that is the chorus from washington. the nra of course says that nothing will pass. old steve stockman says i don't care if anything passes, let's impeach him anyway, gun grab, gun grab. but because of what is going on in washington right now, because that is the discussion, we are also -- we're not just getting the sort of predictable loudness from predictable washington loud voices. we are also getting something really useful. we're also getting p

? >> this film is number one in the country. it is winning in one regards. but the controversy behind the film started a long time ago. it's like politics meets hollywood. there's allegations that kathryn bigelow kind of got secret information from the obama administration when she was, you know, beginning the directorial process for the film. and there's these really intense torture scenes. there's sleep deprivation, waterboarding, some things that people, average viewers just might not be able to tolerate and consume and digest that well. so there's just a big controversy, a big buzz around it. and she was, you know, supposedly -- supposed to be nominated for best director for nim but was -- >> right. was she snubbed because of this? let's think about the kind of films she does. she did "hurt locker." thumbs up on that. she was hugely acclaimed for that. she does have a golden globe nomination, right? >> yes. >> is that the problem here? politics at play? >> people vague it's politics at play. this film did get a lot of buzz critically. it's number one right now. but because of the controver
